Luke 12: 8-12
“The Holy Spirit will teach you what you should say.”
As we follow Jesus, we are called to proclaim the truth of our faith, His message of love, to all the ends of the earth. This mission could be very intimidating, yes, there sure are challenges and persecutions along the way. But in spite of all these, Jesus invites us to be bold and courageous, because we are not to do this mission with our own strengths and capacity. The Holy Spirit is our help. He who would empower us and teach us what to say and do. All he asks from us is our “Yes!”
Holy Spirit, today, I open myself up to you. Teach me, lead me, guide me as I respond to the mission I am being called for. By your power, may the Father’s love be proclaimed through the life I live. Amen.
